Marissa was up bright and early the next morning, feeling well rested and pretty elated from a fun day before with Rory. Which was a surprising realization to her since Rory usually had a habit of making her mad most of the time. Before she could contemplate this further though she was interrupted when by Derek, who dropped his plate loudly on the table and plopped into the seat across from her.
Derek: Care for some company?
Marissa: Uhh.. Sure.
It wasn’t that Marissa disliked Derek, but he often, and some what annoyingly, seemed to show up around her. It was borderline clingy in fact. Still, she saw no reason to be mean to the guy, as she really didn’t know him all that well yet.
